According to the late country music great, his mother taught him this recipe when he was a youngster.

2 cups sugar
2 heaping tbsps cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup Log Cabin syrup
milk as needed
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsps peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped English walnuts

Mix sugar, cocoa, salt and syrup in a saucepan. Add enough milk to make it soupy, but very thick. Bring to a boil and boil until the sugar is dissolved (4 to 5 minutes). Test for doneness by dropping a spoonful into a cup of cold water until it forms a soft ball. Remove from the heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir until it begins to cool. Add the peanut butter and walnuts. Pour into a large platter until it cools then cut into squares.
